CSS Menu Writer Nav hiding under embeded pdf using an object tag

CSS Menu Writer Nav hiding under embeded pdf using an object tag

I am having an issue with my generated CSS Menu Writer navigation. It is hiding under an embeded pdf that I have on my page (the pdf is embeded using and object tag). I have searched all over the web and tried multiple solutions with z-index, wmode, etc. and nothing works. I have then decided to ask for you assistance since all I seem to do is waste more time searching. Please let me know if there is any advice that you could give me.

Do you have a link to a page where I can see this behavior?

Link to problem page

Thanks for looking into this for me. I hope you can help.

Here is the link to the page. There is only one page in the directory (used for testing) so don't be surprised if the main navigation buttons lead you to... nowhere.

forms_template_main.html

More info on the issue

I wanted to put the embedded pdf right up under the main navigation but couldn't see any of the drop downs as they were hidden under the embedded pdf. So I tried to move the embedded area further down the page kind of out of reach from the pdf , but that doesn't seem like a good solution either since people will just have to really scroll to see the content.

Right now you can see the hiding of the drop down under the About Us nav button.

I am also going to embed some Flash into the main content area. Am I also going to run into the same problem with the Flash?

Thanks to any and all who can help!

I tested the page and I wasn't able to reproduce the issue. All the menu items show up correctly and are over the pdf. I'll attach a screen shot for you to see.

What browser do you use to view the pages in?

One thing I noticed was the download for when the browser isn't set up to display pdf files is linked to a broken link.

IE 6-8 Browser Issue

I am using IE 8. But the navigation is hidden on my screen when I preview it in IE 6. I am using a program called IETester to preview the page in IE 6, but am having multiple issues when viewing it in that version. The most prevelent is that the CSSMenuWriter navigation doesn't even show up on any of the pages and the main content areas background image that I have set using a CSS style sheet is also not showing up. I looked on several forums and tried several fixes but none of them worked for me. Most of the people said that IE just has a buggy way of displaying background images in IE 6. I would hate to create this website and have users with IE 6 not even be able to see the navigation or background image on each and every page in my site. Any suggestions?

If you create a test page with just the menu applied on it, does it show up in IE6? If its showing up ok with just the menu, then its something applied to your page that is interfering with the menu. Let me know if the test page works or not.
